Drugs, cash seized in Mosgiel raids

Methamphetamine, cannabis and cash were netted in police raids around Mosgiel yesterday.

Three people were arrested following three separate raids in and around the Mosgiel area, Acting Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond said.

Police seized cannabis, growing equipment, cash, methamphetamine, and a range of utensils.

A 38-year-old man has been charged with cultivating cannabis and dealing class A/B/C drugs, a 43 year-old-man faces 10 charges of possession of cannabis and methamphetamine, and supplying class A drugs, and a 32-year-old woman faces 10 charges for dealing class A/B/C drugs.

They were all due to appear in court this morning.

''Enquiries into evidence found at the three locations are continuing and other people will be spoken to in the coming days about historic drug offending.''
